One of the first casualties of aging is collagen, the skin’s most prolific protein, and structural support. As we grow older, our collagen production slows, and our existing collagen wears out. This results in wrinkles and lax or sagging skin and other unwanted effects. Cosmetic rejuvenation advancements mean Rodeo Surgical Art can help you ward off the signs of aging without invasive procedures.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
Ultherapy® is one such advancement, taking well-understood ultrasound technology—which has been used in medicine for over 50 years—to a whole new level. Dr. David Mashhadian uses Ultherapy® to tighten skin without the need for full cosmetic procedures like the facelift. It all starts with collagen.
Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive FDA-approved treatment for signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles, texture and tone concerns, and folds from loose skin. Using ultrasound energy, Dr. Mashhadian can see areas in the lower dermis where collagen breakdown is at its worst. Highly-controlled ultrasound energy is delivered to lax skin tissues to raise the temperature of the underlying skin layers, rebooting your system’s natural collagen production. Over time, your collagen levels increase, and your skin restores its natural elasticity and support as well as tone and texture.
Ultherapy® is often more effective than laser treatments because it penetrates farther into the skin’s structure, and Dr. Mashhadian is able to see which specific areas require intervention. If you have wrinkles, sagging skin, deepening folds around your nose and mouth, or even loose skin on your face, neck, or décolletage, Ultherapy® can restore collagen support to these tissues, tightening your skin for a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You know your skin best, so if you believe you could benefit from tighter skin and improved collagen production, you may be an ideal candidate. Ultrasound is one of the safest technologies in all of medicine, so few people are disqualified. Schedule a consultation at Rodeo Surgical Art to learn more information.
What is Treatment Like?
An Ultherapy® session is fast, taking only around an hour, depending on how many areas are treated, but the results of that hour pack a punch. Your treatment begins with a thorough cleanse so there is no surface debris to interfere with the ultrasound energy. Just like with ultrasound for medical testing, a gel is applied to the skin to facilitate the Ultherapy® wand’s movements. Dr. Mashhadian will identify the areas which can be most helped by the treatment to deliver the appropriate level of ultrasound energy for maximum effectiveness. Patients report immediately experiencing tightening results after having Ultherapy®.
What Results Can I Expect?
While some patients feel immediate effects from the treatment, collagen gradually accelerates as the production centers repair the skin over time. Peak results are more commonly visible between 2-3 months following treatment. Your results with Ultherapy® are long-lasting because collagen production is reset within the deepest layers of the skin for better-quality collagen that supersedes what shallower treatments can produce. Your overall health can help maintain your results, as will consistent application of sunscreen before sun exposure.
Not all treatments at Rodeo Surgical Arts are invasive, and Ultherapy® is one such treatment that comes with big results without a lot of intervention. Many patients need only one session to see a lasting improvement to skin laxity and other signs of aging. Take control of your appearance and vitality with Ultherapy® today.
